Mudrooms are having a moment y'all

Let’s do a deep dive and talk about how to really get this multi-functional room to do the heavy-lifting for you!

Key features of a mudroom - what is one used for, and what should it contain?

A mudroom is used as a vestibule of sorts near the primary entrance to the home, whether that be the front door, back door, garage, or laundry room, for storing items such as coats, shoes, accessories, and more.

They are a fantastic way to show off your personal style right out of the gate. 

What a wonderful sight to come in from outside and see this beautifully styled and organized space to welcome you home!

What are the best colors to use in mudrooms?

Select a “muddy” color palette to combat the signs of daily wear and tear and add pops of color with art and accessories. This room is going to get a lot of wear, but that’s okay! We’re creating a mood here!

High-traffic areas get a lot of visibility so this is a great space to live on the wild side and add some family heirlooms like paintings and a beautiful basket or stand for umbrellas, outdoor shoes, you name it!

If a mudroom is multipurpose, what functions can it serve?

Many mudrooms morph into a combination of a drop zone / laundry room / storage area and serve as space for organizing everyday outdoor clothing items, accessories and more. 

Just like a powder room, it’s a wonderful opportunity to be a lil ‘fun and fancy’ with your design choices!

Want to increase your ROI? Add a mudroom!

Adding a mudroom can help increase the value of your home in several ways.

First, it can provide additional functional space for homeowners, especially in homes with limited storage space…a win-win for busy families on the move.

A mudroom can also help keep the main living areas of a home cleaner by providing a designated area for shoes, coats, and other items that might otherwise be tracked into the house.

Additionally, a mudroom can be a desirable feature for buyers, as it can help make a home more functional and organized. This can make your home more attractive to potential buyers and increase its overall value!
